    What is the Difference between Silver Metallic & Satin Silver?

    Can you post pics of both colors? well i know the difference between ZY & SY, also DSG & MG, but these colors are hard to tell the difference.

    TIA guys.

    I would look at Cobra Bobs website. He has all the different colors for terminators.

    I do have the colors breakdown on my website but I don't have an actual image of the two silvers. I only have images for the Mineral Gray and Dark Shadow Gray. Even if I did, depending on the camera used the images could be off from the actual colors. I believe the Silver Metallic has more metallic flake in it.

    From what I remember, the paint is actually the same color but the Metalic Silver has chips in it. I think the touch up for both is the same.

    Silver Metallic has metallic flakes in the paint. From far you really cant tell unless the light hits it right. This is silver metallic. Satin silver is just a glossy silver w/o the flakes

    Silver Metallic is the most common 03/04 color along with Black.
    Satin Silver was only in 03 and is the rarest color of all.

    Posted these awhile back. pic's are not the best.
    Contrary to what many say there are flaks in satin silver. just not as pronounced as other silvers.
    Also alot of Lincoln Town cars came in satin silver

    They produced less Satin Silver Cobras than Comp Orange total.
    Coupe and Vert.


    353 Comp O total.

    It's Satin. I'll take some better Pic's this weekend

    Was at a meet a few months back, I Parked beside a silver matalic, there really is a big difference in the two. as I mentioned above, I've noticed that ford used satin silver on a few models, Lincoln Town cars, mustangs and even the Aerostar back around 2001 thru 2002.

    Best way to discribe it is, it's like a dull version of silver but yet it has metalic flake and it shines.. Super easy to keep clean

    Hey CobraBob, below your production numbers you show the difference between Mineral Gray and Dark Shadow Gray, maybe you can do the same for the 2 Silvers too!
